Approximately 44,000 giraffe blankets have been recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), due to the balls on the top of the horns detaching, and posing a choking hazard to small children. The giraffe blankets are sold exclusively at Target Stores. The full details on the recall can be found by clicking here.
The recall states that, thankfully, no injuries have been reported, as of this publication. The product is imported by Rashti and Rashti out of New York, and details on the recall can be found on their website, as well. As the CPSC recall notice states “Consumers should immediately take the recalled blankets away from children and contact Rashti & Rashti for a full refund.”
Even though no injuries have been reported, let’s keep it that way! Follow the recommendations even if your child may cry for a bit when you take away their ‘security blanket.’ A sad but safe child sure beats the alternative.
